The Cuban Institute of Music has confirmed that Colombian singer Juanes will offer a “concert for peace” in Havana with Cuban singer Silvio Rodríguez and local band Los Van Van on Sept. 20. The Communist Party newspaper Granma quoted Osmany López, the institute’s vice president, as saying the 36-year-old winner of five Latin Grammys last year “is very excited” about an open-air concert that will include other Latin American stars who have yet to be confirmed. Lopez said Juanes visited Cuba in June and met with Rodríguez, a pioneering member of the “New Song” movement.
